By David Wine, CEO & President
I am very excited to share some really good news! It was just announced that Lisa Bage, our COO, has been chosen as one of this year’s honorees for Women Who Mean Business by the Kansas City Business Journal! This award recognizes outstanding professional women in the greater KC metro that have made significant achievements in their business or industry, as well as their community. A panel of six judges selected the 25 honorees. We will get to see Lisa featured in a special Kansas City Business Journal edition coming the week of October 9th and the honorees will be recognized at a later event.
Not only am I excited for Lisa, who is so well-deserving of this award, but it is also good news for MAX! First, it is an affirmation for our team at MAX. Lisa knows and would be the first to say that awards like this may point to an individual but there is always a community behind that individual that helped make it happen. Second, our growth and development at MAX has not gone unnoticed. I celebrate not only with Lisa but also celebrate that this award points to MAX and the really amazing things we have going on!
So, to our team, agents, and members, please join me in congratulating Lisa for this well-deserved recognition. We are grateful for her leadership at MAX.
